[DMCForum] Way OT: "Someone To Watch Over Me" from what commercial?



Okay, this is *way* off-topic, but I'm at my wits end on this and I 
figured I'd throw it to the masses in this Roman coliseum and see what 
comes back...

I remember, probably back to the early to mid eighties, a long-running 
ad campaign that used the hook from the Gershwin tune "Someone To Watch 
Over Me" at the end of their commercials (Incidentally, this was my 
first exposure to the song as a child; I didn't realize at the time that 
it was a popular song).  In my recollection. the voice might have been 
Phoebe Snow (or similar).

An extensive Google goose chase came up mostly empty (apparently H&R 
Block started using it recently, but that's definitely not what I 
remember).  I'm leaning towards insurance companies and appliance 
manufacturers, but nothing has clicked yet.

Does anyone remember what ad campaign I'm remembering?

Regards,
Jon Heese
